When president Obama took office the stock market was around 7,000 and the economy was losing millions of jobs. A couple of years later and the stock market almost doubled to over 12,000. The economy started growing and jobs were being added each month.
Then came the Tea Baggers. Their view on cutting government during a time of financial crises has resulted in the stock market losing almost 2,000 points. Their view is like saying we are going to cut the water to the fire department during a huge fire.
